* PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. Raine's lectures are treated as a FateWorseThanDeath, and in one dungeon you ''don't'' have to listen to her. Her lecture will loop in the background until you find two guys trying to blow up the ruins they're visiting.

* Septon Meribald's 'Broken Man' speech from A Feast for Crows may qualify with two pages of almost nothing except Meribald sharing his views on military deserters with Brienne and Podrick, its actually a very heartrending speech and one of this tropers personal favorite moments from the books.

to:

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' contains a number of these due to its {{Doorstopper}} length. TropesAreNotBad, as characters often use the time to explain motives that otherwise [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters might have gotten lost in the shuffle]] or express [[DeliberateValuesDissonance views that readers will probably sympathize with]] to help prevent DarknessInducedAudienceApathy. Septon Meribald's 'Broken Man' speech from A (about military deserters) in ''A Feast for Crows may qualify with two pages of almost nothing except Meribald sharing his views on military deserters with Brienne and Podrick, its actually Crows'' is a very heartrending speech and one of this tropers personal favorite moments from the books.notable example.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': There's that one Krogan during Mordin's loyalty mission who decides it'd be a good idea to [[EvilGloating proclaim his own and his clan's superiority]] instead of killing Shepard on sight. This encounter might also "coincidentally" be that one time where Paragon players [[KilledMidSentence activated a Renegade action prompt]].
-->'''Shepard''': You talk too much

Frequent offenders in Wrestling/RingOfHonor such as Wrestling/RoderickStrong have been greeted with "Please Don't Talk".

Added DiffLines:

* Among the other examples in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' one of Vivianne's stands out as a well timed right wing assault on ISIS and the Arab Spring: her response to asking about mages fighting mages is; condensed and quoting directly, some have declared war on the entire free world, and those opposed to wholesale murder are forced to take up arms to defend themselves against these terrorists.

* Arguably, Vegeta from DragonBallZ. While he isn't the voice box of Akira's personal beliefs, he is known to wax on and on about his Saiyan heritage and his grudge against Goku. The obvious example would be during his second fight with Goku as Majin Vegeta. ''Twice'' in that same fight he goes on a long-winded speech about why Goku has humiliated him, shamed him, etc. He even gets one more speech in during the final battle with Kid Buu as he explains to himself (and the audience) why he now can finally admit that Goku is better than he.
